    Read the title and that just about sums up my question.

    Imo the vote that runs each time should be 3/4 customs vs 1/2 valve maps. obviously don't just put any old custom in the votes, put good ones in so they actually stand a chance of being picked against the valve ones.

    I'm trying to get this done, I've just been lax at doing it because it's like 100-200 MB for every decent map. (bsp x2 + bz2)

    So I need a set of the top quality maps people would like to see. If anyone would like to post some go ahead. (post things others have already said, too, so I can see what's wanted more).

    I think we should still have the valve maps/community maps picked by valve in rotation, so I'll omit those from my choices.

    - Halfacre
    - Waste (whichever)
    - Yukon
    - Cashworks
    - Frontier
    - Science (why doesn't anyone run this one anymore?)
    - Aerospace
    - Mach4

    I do not think valve maps should be in the rotation. They'll get precedence from pubbers, and negate the purpose of having the customs on there.

    3CP:
    Silvertrail
    Glacier
    Furnace

    5CP:
    Waste
    Yukon
    Generator
    Freight
    Science or Science2
    Gullywash
    Follower

    PL: Ungh, a lot
    Frontier & Cashworks
    Hoodoo & Halfacre
    Waste
    Repository
    Swift or Swiftwater
    ... Too many, don't feel like listing them all

    Arena:
    Harvest v2
    Desolation
    Offblast
    Coalmine
    Lighthouse

    A/D : Not many to choose from, and those that exist are kinda weak...
    Boulder? idk

    CTF:
    Mach4
    Slate

    Other:
    Oilfield v2 I think
    Meridian

    I'm working on those listed, and it's also worth noting I was finally on the server at a non-gameday time and realized an error in the configuration. It was supposed to be an automated vote to pick the next map, not a rotation, but it was set to occur at a time that wouldn't always happen.
    So that's fixed now and there should be less occurrence of valve maps as I get the list populated.

    We need more than three maps per vote, very often all three maps are of the "ehhh I dont want to go to any of those!"

    I'd like to be able to do that, but I can't. I'd need to find a different plugin or learn to write them.
